Road Trip to Yungilla Valley

We were delighted to join our friends, Chuck and Nancy, for a little road trip.
Rich was a little intrepid about the ride as he suffers horrible motion sickness sometimes, but we decided to give it a try.  Chuck was the perfect, careful driver and Rich chewed on his ginger and was just fine.

This was our first trip into the Valley.  The scenery is breathtaking.

We thought this picture was kind of fun.
Lots of cows and a billboard advertising extreme sports.

We passed through the tiny town of Giron.

A statue of a 'Chola'.

Street art.

A museum to visit next time.  You can see the small cannons outside, so we think it might be a military exhibit.

Sugarcane processing.

The altitude is about 2000 ft lower than Cuenca, so the vegetation is different and the weather is warmer...nice to warm our bones after the cold of Cuenca.

The agenda for the trip (besides seeing all the wonderful scenery) was to also catch up with Andre and blog entry.
